Home Another Way by Brenda Anderson

A Preview… Full review coming on release day 5th Feb.

Home Another Way by Brenda Anderson is a delightful contemporary Christian romance. It is the eighteenth book in the Potter’s House series but can be read as a stand-alone.

Once again Brenda Anderson has created a story that consumes the reader. There are godly lessons to be learnt as we examine our lives.

I adore all Brenda Anderson’s novels. She creates warm and welcoming characters who have realistic flaws and are just waiting to be re-shaped in the hands of the Master potter. Just perfect.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

Place Called Home by Brenda Anderson

Listen To The Master Tuner

Place Called Home by Brenda Anderson is a most delightful contemporary Christian novel. It is the eleventh book in the Potter’s House series but can be read as a stand-alone.

All Brenda Anderson’s books hit the spot and Place Called Home is no exception. With warm, welcoming characters, the reader feels instantly at home, snuggling down in the figurative comfy slippers for a fabulous read. We feel empathy for the plight of the lead character whilst longing to take her under our wings and into our heart.

There are many godly messages within the novel. We need to be open to being used by God and listen out for His prompting. “Why couldn’t he just… ignore God’s nudges?” We ignore the whispers of God at our peril. When He speaks we would be wise to listen. We may also be just the person to help someone else. “When God places someone on our doorstep, we don’t turn them away.” God knows just who needs what, where and when. Look out for the four w’s in your  life.

Long Way Home by Brenda Anderson

The Car Whisperer

Long Way Home by Brenda Anderson is a delightful contemporary Christian novel about real sacrificial love. It is the fourth book in the Potter’s House series – a collection of books by different authors united by themes.

Real love is in 1 Corinthians: 13. Outside of Jesus, few of us know this real love. We are to model this love to others as Jesus shows His love to us.

Who needs love? Everyone. “The wealthy need to be loved and accepted too.” Sometimes people with wealth believe that they already have everything that money can buy. The love of Jesus is free but if we do not receive that love, we will be eternally poor. It reminds me of a quote from my pastor Leon Evans who said “some people are so poor, all they have is money.”

Planting Hope by Brenda Anderson

Wonderful – Hope In my Heart

Planting Hope by Brenda Anderson is a wonderful Christian romance which I really adored. It is the third book in the Where The Heart Is series but can be read as a stand-alone. I enjoyed meeting up with familiar characters.

Brenda Anderson always writes warm and welcoming novels with characters that just take up residence in my heart. Planting Hope is no exception. The characters are all realistic and likable. There are some wonderfully amusing and fun dialogue exchanges that put a smile on your face and a warm fuzzy feeling in your heart. As well as getting to know the ‘living’ characters, I also felt like I ‘knew’ Gran who died before the novel began. The inclusion of ‘Granisms’ impart wise wisdom into both the readers and the characters.
